It's One Drama After the Other on The Block Glasshouse
With all the drama on The Block Glasshouse lately it's almost too easy to forget that there are multimillion-dollar homes being created week by week.
Last week's incredible work (the teams revealed their stunning lounge and dining areas on Sunday) was hectic enough — throw in a show-wide audit of expenses, growing animosity between contestant Deanne and long-serving judge Shaynna Blaze and a potentially-dangerous rogue fuel tank, and you have a full-blown circus on your hands with cameras prepped to catch it all.
The audit came about after Max and Karsten's competitors became suspicious about how they managed to have so much more money than everyone else. The teams all follow a strict set of playing rules, one of the main stipulations being that all hired tradies have to be paid a certain amount — if any teams has excess money, it immediately casts doubts that there aren't underhand deals taking place behind the scenes. The audit came up clear except when it came to Max and Karsten's huge bathroom — invoices show they didn't pay a cent for the tiling, but they claim they did. All's well that ends well, though: they have 24 hours to present proof of payment to Scotty Cam, and we're thinking it's all going to work out just fine.
That wasn't even nearly the biggest issue of the week, though. That came in the form of a rogue fuel tank that construction workers stumbled upon midway through the week. Foreman Keith looked like he was about to relive his breakfast when he caught wind of the potential disaster unfolding outside the front of the building; the tank (which turned out to be 60 to 70 years old and still full of fuel!) could have leaked throughout the grounds of the property, it could have been too fragile to move, and of course, where there's petrol there is always threat of fire and explosions.
The worst case scenario would have seen the building site shut down for good, meaning all the teams' hard work so far would've been for nothing and the apartments would have to remain half finished. Thankfully, it was safely removed intact and construction progressed from there.
See? So much drama we just had to remind ourselves of which rooms were finished this week. Refresher: it was the lounge/dining areas, which are obviously integral to any home and were treated as such by the hard-working teams. Max and Karsten delivered our personal favourite this week, but it was Queensland's Michael and Carlene who took top spot in the judge's eyes. We've got all the renovated rooms pictured below — scroll through and tell us which is your favourite!
